Not a great vid, but someone tagged the neighbors fence. Makes me want to put up more cameras!

I have a few cameras in storage. Just don't feel like putting them up because we are looking to buy our own home. And they are large red ants. I think we just call them red ants here.

Hi @Philip Gonzales

Do be cautious on that as I just read the following ( some cities housing values have jumped like crazy, and you can expect an adjustment.. Global issue btw for example in Australia some places on the edge of cities they are expecting a 70-80% decline - absolutely crazy... can't imagine it getting that bad in the USA though )

I think that is just a tricky mounting spot overall. Move to the right and the post on the right will be reflecting a lot of IR back. Of course it will be less light than the porch light is putting out so maybe better.

Turn your cam to the right, your porch light is blinding your cam and ruining the dynamic range.
Yeah I had meant to do that. Just one of the many things on the to do list. I'll be sure to take care of this asap. Maybe today. I'm actually off tomorrow so should be able to make it happen.

Anything around here under $300k, won't stay on the market more than a day or two before it's snatched up. Prices are up 20% from last summer as well.

In general from the data I have seen it will start down trending, some metro areas this has already occurred.

( Robert Shiller btw is calling this the 3rd largest housing bubble so far... not as bad as the last one though.. )

I'm not going to lie I haven't read the article you posted yet. So you are saying if I wait to buy a house I can grab a great deal? IDK I tend to ignore the talks about rising and falling homes and interest rates. So much noise it's hard to know what's true. I guess no one knows for sure.

HI @Philip Gonzales

1) There's a LOT of deceptive "data" and "facts" being put out. Numerous groups do not want to state: "housing prices will go down, don't buy now - wait". I'll let you decide which groups would benefit from that. It has taken me quite sometime to find what I feel are more reliable data.

2) Precise economic predictions can be challenging - as there are a lot of moving parts to economic systems.

That noted - the economy goes in "business cycles" - at this point we are "late in the business cycle" and subject to a "correction" ( global correction ).

What I have been reading, shows that in numerous metro areas the housing prices have increased significantly since 2012. In some areas it is absolutely crazy the prices they want for a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom shamble. Seriously completely out of wack. ( there's a good reason why you are seeing youtube videos trending on how to convert a shipping container into a house, or a car into a hidden home )

Personally, I would hold off on buying a house for the next few years in the metro areas I have looked at. ( I am certain if you look you can find a few deals always.. )

Well I just bought a new "family vehicle". Part of the deal is a told my fiancee that if we get the ehrmm family vehicle that the house would be put on hold for a couple of years. Also we live in Texas where homes are supposedly cheaper but I don't know. All I know is I couldn't pack us in that little Focus I had any longer.

The good news is that they make a tent that fits in the bed of the truck! May be living in that for the next couple of years but that's OK with me.

The camera I have up is really only for the front door and maybe piece of the driveway. I kind of want to put up more but I don't want to go crazy as we still do want to get a house even if it is 2 years. I guess I could ask my landlord (my uncle) if I could drill some holes in the wall lol. He didn't mind in the last house we were renting from him. But not sure I want to do it at this point.
